Pressure Gauge Testing Service

Effective Thursday, June 25, 2020:

University of Maine Cooperative Extension buildings are currently CLOSED in an effort to ensure the health and safety of the community, and to help stem the spread of the coronavirus.

At some point in July, county offices will reopen following UMaine guidance and protocols. Exact dates have not yet been determined. Please check this site for updates or feel free to call the office for updated information.

However, please note that UMaine Extension is operating and staff are working remotely.

Please call or check our website for the latest information about office closures and changes to services.

You should have your dial gauge on your pressure canner checked annually for accuracy. The University of Maine Cooperative Extension provides free Pressure Dial Gauge Testing. Call or email the contact person for your county, listed below, to get your dial gauge tested.
